Women's Health at Innova

Women's Health Physical Therapists evaluate and treat musculoskeletal conditions specific to the pelvic floor. This speciality is known to help prenatal and postpartum females, as well as female athletes or postmenopausal women, but this speciality encompasses the health concerns of ALL women across their lifespan.

The anatomy of the female pelvic floor includes muscles, ligaments, fascia, and bones that contribute to supporting your organs and stabilizing your body; this anatomy is different than that of a male (see male speciality). This essential group of muscles can help regulate bladder and bowel processes, and promote optimal sexual function. There are also known changes that can occur in your body as your hormones fluctuate which can impact your musculoskeletal system. Your Women's Health therapist has specialized training to treat disorders related to any of the above.

How can Physical Therapy help?

Your specialized Physical Therapist can treat pelvic floor dysfunctions using a variety of methods that may include manual techniques, strengthening, biofeedback, biomechanics training, and support for optimal bladder and bowel habits.

A sample of conditions pelvic floor rehabilitation may be appropriate for:

  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
